When this happens, am I supposed to just pick activities that include me being at home, like TV, crossword, etc? How do I stop my pets from getting lonely and/or aggressive?
toys for the cat will help, and make sure they can see you have enough food, but primarily it’s a matter of spending time at home. That includes social activities at your house like watching football, poker or playing chess.
I am having this problem too. How many times must you spend time at home to appease the upset pet? Does it have to be several consecutive evenings in a row?
No, it’s just the balance between being there and not there, but I might tweak this with the next patch.
